Casting Teen Performers for "Pippin" Play

Danville, IL, United States
ID: 567329Exp: 4/30/2024

Seeking teen performers in 8th grade - 12th grade for the play "Pippin." Please refer to the details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE ACCEPTED. About the project: Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day. With an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz, Pippin is the story of one young man’s journey to be extraordinary. Winner of four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, this updated circus-inspired version of Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world. Additional info: Prepare 16-32 measures (about 60 seconds) of a Broadway song in the style of the show. Learn the audition choreography when it is available and be prepared to perform it by memory. SHOW DATES: July 26-28, 2024. Please see the attachment for details. If you are interested please apply.
